Breast Enlargement Supplement: Risk, Effectiveness and Scientific Evidence

Breast Enlargement Supplement: Risk, Effectiveness and Scientific Evidence

A Breast enlargement supplement is the preferred choice for women who are looking for a non surgical breast enlargement alternative. First of all there is no surgery, which means you save a lot of money. On top of that you will not have to worry about scars, leaks, pain, or the time it will take for you to heal. However, due to concerning side effects that are caused by surgical breast enlargement procedures and breast augmentation, women have started preferring natural breast enhancement methods. These methods include increasing the size of breasts with breast enhancing creams, pills and exercises.


Herbal Grobust is all natural, and contains a proprietary combination of eight herbs traditionally used for natural female hormonal balancing. These herbs include blessed thistle, damiana (which is used for restoring the body’s vital energies), dandelion root, dong quai (benefits include hormone balancing), lemon balm (an aid to relaxing tension), motherwort (helpful in maintaining normal feminine cycles), saw palmetto (promotes normal bust development and calms the nerves), and wild yam.

But most of their ingredients of herbal Grobust have nothing to do with growing breast tissues or cells. With so many ingredients, they may appear to offer something special that other companies don't have.

Dozens of creams, gels, and pills with names like Bloussant, Wonder Cream, Grobust, and Miracle Bust now promise to increase a woman’s breast size. They contain various combinations of herbs that are supposed to enlarge the breasts, such as fennel, saw palmetto, wild yam, fenugreek, and dandelion. Potential side effects include bleeding, allergic reactions, and headache. If plant estrogens (presumably the active ingredient in many of these herbs) can make breast tissue grow, they might also stimulate abnormal breast cells to multiply. Apart from the strong likelihood that you are wasting your money, you are taking an unnecessary risk.

Natural breast enlargement pills could theoretically increase breast size because some of them contain herbs that have known estrogen-like effects on the body. Birth control pills are thought to temporarily increase breast size in the same way--estrogen causes fluid retention in the breasts and may have an effect on breast tissue.

Women's use of all medications--including herbal supplements is higher than anticipated, and they're unlikely to tell their health care providers about the medications they take, according to a University of Minnesota researcher. The data also showed several potentially serious drug interactions. The study also found several women taking prescription antidepressants also self-medicated with St. John's wort, an herbal supplement commonly used to treat depression, which has been shown to have potentially harmful interactions with prescription antidepressants.

Claire Williamson, of the British Nutrition Foundation, said isoflavone supplements are not as effective in managing menopausal symptoms as isoflavone rich foods such as Soya.

Source and ingredients used in breast enlargement supplement with scientific evidence:

Blessed Thistle: The herb blessed thistle is approved by Germany's Commission E for the treatment of loss of appetite and indigestion. Still no published clinical trials on blessed thistle for natural breast enlargement.

Fenugreek Seed Extract: According to national Center for Complementary and alternative Medicine (NCCAM); it was used for a variety of health conditions, including menopausal symptoms and digestive problems. It was also used for inducing childbirth; to stimulate milk production (galactorrhea).There is not enough scientific evidence to support the use of fenugreek for any other health condition.

Dong Quai: Dong quai is a Chinese herb used primarily to relieve menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, reduce menstrual cramps, and regulates menstrual cycles. One potential risk is that dong quai has been found to stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells (estrogen receptor-positive and negative) in test tube studies but no recognized clinical trial shown its breast enlargement effect.

Mexican Wild Yam Root: According to NLM; despite popular belief, no natural progestins, estrogens, or other reproductive hormones are found in wild yam. Its active ingredient, diosgenin, is not converted to hormones in the human body. Most studies have not shown a benefit from wild yam given by mouth or used as a vaginal cream, in reducing menopausal symptoms. However, yam may improve the status of sex hormones, lipids, and antioxidants in a recent study in postmenopausal women. Further research is needed before a recommendation can be made.

Fennel Seed: Fennel has been used for centuries as both food and medicine. It was used traditionally to increase the flow of breast milk in nursing women, enhance libido, and increase menstrual flow. There are no published studies examining the use of fennel seed for breast enhancement in humans.

Black Cohosh: Although some study results suggest that black cohosh may help relieve menopausal symptoms, other study results do not. Studies of black cohosh have yielded conflicting data, in part because of lack of rigor in study design and short study duration (6 months or less). No studies have been published on long-term safety in humans, particularly regarding abnormal stimulation of cells in the endometrium or breast.

Fenugreek: Although there is an unsubstantiated claim that women in harems were fed fenugreek seeds to increase their breast size, no studies confirm fenugreek can result in breast enlargement.

Nobody should take any pills that claim to enhance the size of the breasts. some of them have the world vitamins attached to it , kind of misleading. Sometimes when anyone is under dieting to loose weight, it seems that when you loose weight, you loose the fat from your breasts first and that is genetic, some people when they loose weight, they loose it first from other areas like the thighs and the butt. So there is also misleading. We really need to inquire better about patients taking herbal and over-the-counter medications.

Almost all herbal supplements and vitamins are not regulated by the FDA, only their preservatives and food grade dyes are regulated, these herbal supplements are not the exception. Please be careful when purchasing these items. Some of them contain herbs that are contraindicated with other medications or herbal supplements and can even cause heart palpitations or nervousness.

There is no evidence that natural breast enhancement supplements lead to breast enlargement. Some herbs have been used historically to improve the production of mother's milk, such as fenugreek and fennel, or as treatments for breast disorders, such as wild yam, red clover, black cohosh. But none of these supplements will make your breasts larger. The phytoestrogens in natural breast enhancing supplements could increase your risk of some types of breast and gynecologic cancers.

Breast "Firming Creams" usually contain Pueraria mirifica. This plant extract grows in Thailand only and has a high concentration of phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are not hormones, per se, but they supposedly provide the same benefits of natural estrogen. Estrogen is what increases breast size during ovulation, with the birth control pill and physician-supplied hormone supplements.

Herbal medicine is the use of plants or mixtures of plant extracts in the treatment or prevention of disease. This includes all parts of the plant, the leaves, stalks and roots. Each part can differ in strength and effects. You need to be careful with herbal medicines, as with any medicine. Just because a product is called ‘natural’ or ‘herbal’, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is always safe to use.
